• In memory of Clair Coope

      3rd July 1974 - 9th December 2019

      Our much-loved Operations Manager Clair Coope sadly and unexpectedly passed away in December 2019.

      Clair was not just a colleague but a dear and much loved friend to all of us. She was unfailingly dedicated to her role, and supportive of all of us.

      During her career she worked as a teaching assistant, then NVQ assessor and nursery manager.  In April 2005 Clair helped set up Bluebell Children’s Nurseries and was appointed Operations Manager, making all of the nurseries a huge success.

      Clair touched the lives of countless people, including friends, colleagues, children and families.

      Clair will always be respected and admired for her enduring commitment and outstanding contribution to Bluebell and everyone who worked with her. We recognise what a wonderful person she was and her love and dedication will continue to live on.
